(Janáček: The Cunning Little Vixen). Sop. Travesti role. His real name is Zlatohřbítek. He falls in love with the Vixen and, when she becomes pregnant, marries her and they live in the forest with their cubs. To give a greater contrast in vocal timbre between the Vixen and the Fox, the Fox is often sung by a mez. or, in some productions, by a ten. Created (1924) by Božena Snopková.
